MOTORSPORT extravaganza the Cholmondeley Pageant of Power will go back to its roots by celebrating power in all its forms this summer.
And the family-friendly Cheshire event, from June 12-14, will this year ramp up the revs with a 1,000bhp-plus class on the estate race track.
That’s in addition to celebrations of the Lotus marque on day one, American muscle cars on the Saturday and Eighties supercars on the Sunday.
The power theme will also be emphasised by the world’s most powerful rally cars from the notorious Group B period and Formula One cars from the fearsome turbo era.
Motorcycling fans can feast on a line-up of 200bhp bikes, including the most powerful two-stroke ever made the Suzuki RGV500 XRB0.
Headlining day one is the first-ever parade of all production Lotus models ever manufactured, organised by the Historic Lotus Register.
Everything from the original Seven to the Esprit to the most powerful Lotus ever, the Evora GTE, will take part in a special concours dedicated to the British company.
Tilting for the Americana title are both the Plymouth Barracuda HEMIs and Dodge Challenger, while the Eighties supercars gracing the track on the Sunday will be bedroom wall poster heroes like the Lamborghini Countach 5000QV with its 455bhp 5.2-litre and the Ferrari Testarossa.
Some 67,000 people attended the festival last year and tickets are now on sale at the CPOP website. Adult prices are from £22 and children’s tickets are free if purchased before April 30.
